You can work through the steps to achieve a parenting plan

Before you create a parenting plan, there are a few things you should consider. For instance, if you and your spouse are emotional and try to put yourselves over the relationship with your child, it can backfire. You want to make sure that you look at this like a business arrangement. Your child deserves to spend time two both parents, and feuding will make this hard on your child.

Next, know that just because you opt for a written parenting plan doesn't mean you and your ex-spouse don't trust one another. In fact, it simply means that you have something to refer back to. Working together to create a plan is sensible, and should an argument arise, you'll have the paperwork right in front of you that says what you and your ex agreed to.

It's true that something will go wrong at some point. No one is perfect. Maybe your ex will bring home your daughter an hour late, or your child will refuse to go to the other parent's house out of obstinacy. You should both be prepared to be slightly flexible in these situations. Unless the issue comes up time and time again, it's likely not something you need to take back to court.

Finally, keep records if there is a prolonged dispute. When you present the information to the court, you'll want to know the date and time of each problem that you ran into, so the judge can look into a helpful solution.Your attorney will need this information when it's time to present the dispute to the court. Our website has more information on what you can do if you have a legal concern.
